Need Profile PLA AA 0.8 Nozzle for Ultimaker 3

Posted · Need Profile PLA AA 0.8 Nozzle for Ultimaker 3

Hopefully my title makes sense. I am having a hard time trying to get Cura to behave. I installed a brand new AA 0.8 nozzle to print PLA at a faster rate. Before this I always used an AA 0.4 and my prints are great for it. I have some items that I need that quality isn't a big deal and I figured a 0.3 or 0.4 profile would be perfect for it. However as soon as I selected AA 0.8 on Extruder 2 I only have 1 option "Fast - 0.2mm". Not exactly what I was looking for.

 

Does anyone have a profile that will work with my UM3 for PLA that will give me a 0.3 and/or 0.4 option? Thanks!

    Just use "fast 0.8" and change layer height to 0.3 or 0.4.  That's it.

     

    There's no magic in the profiles.  You don't need to tweak 5 other parameters - simply increase layer height some more.

    That's because you have a AA0.4 core on the other side. As long as you have both cores active cura only gives you profiles to print with both cores together. 

     

    Since the 0.2 layer height is the only height both cores can print, cura hides the other one. 

     

    If you disable the AA0.4 printcore cura shows you all the profiles for the AA0.8 core, so that you can use the 0.3mm and 0.4mm layer height profiles.

    Yep, that was the answer. Disable the AA 0.4 core and now I can use the AA 0.8 core. Now I can print at 0.3mm and 0.4mm. Thanks so much!

     Thank you so much - I couldn't figure this out to save my life! All the more confusing is that the symptoms are similar to another issue people have where their configuration settings become faulted - and that's how I was trying to solve it.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
